Earring by WALD Berlin

As ephemeral as trends may be, there are those that seem to linger on – clinging to our subconscious, before returning once more with fresh angles or a new edge that makes us fall in love with them all over again.

Pearls, for example, are gaining momentum this season; however, this time around, they’re more the stuff of ‘mermaid chic’ than they are of ‘Grandma’s best’. 

A fresh-water look, characterised by a raw, sculpturally unique stone... Perfectly imperfect! From intricately embellished hoops to artfully jagged droplets, this refined-yet-rustic #FaceFurniture trend allows everyone to channel their inner Ariel.
